'm happy to work with supervisor farrell and others to look at things that we could tweak about the composition or the reporting, so that it is more effective. i have heard a number of concerns over time about whether it's being too -- no effective enough -- no enough -- we certainly have a general obligation bond oversight committee and we have bond oversight at the city college. so we have a more tradition of bond oversight than in the past. if this is not extended my understanding is that there would be effectively no oversight of the literally billions of dollars of [pwo-pbts/]s bonds that the puc has. so i would just offer those comments. on the legislation itself, sorry i did read it online 9-10, there there is no reference to section 1. there are section 2 and 3. unless you have any questions, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> through the chair to our city attorney real quick. does that make sense to have that in there, section 1? >> yes. >> we have it online? >> right under "be it ordained." >> can i take time to answer the question why we put 2013 into

, legislative aid to supervisor mark farrell. >> welcome. >> again, i'm a legislative aid to supervisor farrell. i'll be speaking on behalf of him today. the legislation that is before you today, it's clean-up legislation to supervisor farrell's payroll expense tax exclusion that was before this commission earlier this year. the original intent of the original legislation was for small businesses to take advantage of this from 2012 to 2015. and it was actually drafted before the gross receipts ballot initiative that's on the ballot cycle, that language had been finalized, which included, if that had passed it, our legislation would not go into effect. but we realize now with the legislation, with the gross receipts file initiative, small businesses won't be able to have their payroll expense tax rate reduced until 2014. so, to stick with the original intent of our legislation for 2012 to 2015, this actually prevents the termination of the event -- of the gross receipts tax passing. the original legislation and this legislation has the support of five of supervisor farrell's colleagues. campos,

from mission sro collaborative and i want to thank supervisors kim, campos and farrell. i have not experienced bed bugs in my building. i live in the 16th street hotel. many other people have. this bed bug legislation will cause a manager -- will ensure the managers will have train curriculum on exactly what and how to deal with bed bugs, inspectors and the dph to make sure managers don't just say that they took care of. it they will have to prove that they took care of it. this legislation would give tenants peace of mind. managers would have to fulfill their obligations or be issued a violation from the dph and i would be on their tails to make sure that they do their jobs. as a tenants' right organizer i'm known in the mission district as the tro for the sro from hell. thank you.

farrell for his outstanding leadership and collaborative approach in addressing this key issue. and i know that as we did with pension reform, we'll be able to work together to overcome this challenge and develop a plan that will address our long-term challenge of sustainably funding the commitments we have made. as well as developing ways to proactively address rising health care costs. as a final note while we can and we should and we will focus on consensus measures to address this challenge, i would also like to suggest that the board of supervisors is able to take measures now to address this issue. it is tempting to commit the entirety of today's resources to today's problems. but we also need to take into account the needs of tomorrow. saving isn't the most thrilling thing to do, but i know that you value the long-term fiscal health of our city, supervisors just as i do and you will make decisions that benefit the city today, as well as in the future. thank you. our final question by supervisor campos. thank you. thank you mr. mayor. it's good to see you. i believe i'm not alone wit
